Amazing company and opportunities

Software Engineer (Former Employee)
Menlo Park, CA

ProsAmazing perks, job opportunities, co-workers, and compensation (in the tech industry). Extremely high levels of autonomy and work flexibility.

ConsThere's almost no one rules about when to work, but during hackathons, there is some pressure to work late on projects for the company. Likewise, it can be stressful at times (for example, when nearing a product launch).

Advice to Senior ManagementContinue to be accessible and open about your goals within the company, and strive to maintain the current culture as the company grows

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend – I'm optimistic about the outlook for this company

    The best job I've ever had

    Production Engineer (Current Employee)

    I have been working at Facebook full-time for more than 3 years


    Pros: They grill you hard in the interview but once you're in, you get a lot of autonomy and freedom to make decisions about how you… Cons: The cons at Facebook mostly fall under the heading of "growing pains".
